The most arrogantly overblown statement about fear of public speaking

In a book titled $3.33 from back in 2011 Jarod Kintz claimed that:

“99% of the population is afraid of public speaking, and of the remaining 1%, 99% of them have nothing original and interesting to say.”

Back on February 17th I blogged about Bursting a hilariously overblown claim that 99% of the world fears public speaking. Mr. Kintz’s quote was repeated in a 2012 Big Fish Blog post titled 25 More Awesome Public Speaking Quotes.
The image was adapted from a 1900 Puck magazine found at the Library of Congress.
